Their fans are gearing up for football season anyways.  GO BIG RED!

So, it looks like the guys had a great time...got to spend some quality time bonding and playing hoops.   They went 4-0 and (as far as I know) didn't suffer any injuries.   I'd put

Nebraska has had its fair share of players who deserve an apology (Benny P and a young Tai Webster come to mind) and it wouldn't surprise me if Thor is next on that list.

I personally do not have an issue with these games being out of sight (so to speak).  There should be zero expectations regarding these scrimmages.  The team needs to go to Italy, have fun, ball a little, see the sites and get to know each other.  Winning and building expectations should take place later this autumn.

Yes I wouldn't put too much stock into what happens in Italy. 

 

1. Its a very new team that is still learning the systems and each other

2. Only about 10% of the system has been installed so far. So we still dont know who will take it and run and who will struggle when the implementation gets heavier

3. Right now its just basketball. Theres no added stress from classes and howework. Also, with a new system, new players/roles, and this being a foreign trip im sure our players arent gonna be very well scouted by the opposing teams

4. We will be down Cam Mack and Yvan Ouedraogo 

 

Im just hoping for a healthy trip and hopefully four box scores of stats to analyze and nerd out over until football kicks off.

Kevin Cross looks shorter than Haanif Cheatham and Thorir looks to be towering over him (even though none of the three are perfectly lined up and Cross appears to be in slides).

 

Pic is from a team photo of them in the airport if anyone cares to post it.

FWIW, Thor’s right foot can be seen in the photo and you can tell he’s standing on his tip toes.

Agree.  

This team should get better as the season progresses: the quality of the product on the court at the end of the season should be dramatically better than at the beginning, assuming reasonably good luck on injuries.

That’s the direct-opposite from last year, because most of our best talent was returning.
